How to Choose the Right Carpet for Your Home

How to Choose the Right Carpet for Your Home

Are you thinking about adding some carpet to your home? Whether you are replacing an existing carpet or adding carpet over a different type of floor, there are many options to consider. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before starting the selection process:

What Type of Room Will the Carpet Be Used In?

The first question to ask yourself is what room you’ll be using the carpet in. Are you looking to add carpet in a bedroom, living area, or hallway? Considering what type of traffic the room will be undergoing is important. Higher traffic areas are best served by a lighter pile, loop style carpet that is durable and will withstand up to heavy traffic.

How Do You Want the Carpet to Feel Underfoot?

It’s also important to consider how you want the carpet to feel under your feet. If you want a plush feeling, you will need to get a carpet with a higher pile or a luxurious plush carpet. Alternatively, if you want a more durable carpet to help you feel more stable, you can get a flat, dense cut-and-loop style carpet.

How Much Maintenance Do You Want to Do On Your Carpet?

Something else to consider is how much maintenance you want to do on your carpet. The lighter color you select, the most often you will need to have the carpet cleaned. In addition, higher pile carpets will become worn down more quickly and will need more treatments to keep it fresher looking.

What is Your Carpet Budget?

One of the most important things to consider when selecting a new carpet for your home is your budget. Pick a number that you’re comfortable spending in total, including the carpet, carpet pad, and any installation costs. If you want to know what this number is based on square feet, start by calculating the square footage of the room you will be carpeting. Then, divide your total budget by that number. If you want to spend $1,000 and need 200 square feet of carpet, your budget per square foot is $5.00.
